A team of seasoned Filipino Web Designers (including me heheh) banded together and plans to have a great Web Design Conference slated April of next year.
To while away the time, we will be holding our Mini Web Design Conference, bar camp style on October 30, 2008 (Thursday), 6pm at Tech Bar/G2VC Innovation Center, 5th Floor, The Orient Square, F. Ortigas Road (formerly Emerald Ave.), Ortigas Center, Pasig City (view map).
Dubbed “< form> function() .class “, only 50 slots are reserved. Tentative Speakers and their topics: Rico Sta. Cruz – Grid Layouts, Marco Palinar – Interface design, Aja Lapus – Design & Web Standards and yours truly will be discussing about Philippine Laws Supporting Web Accessibility.
Aside from blogging for the deaf, my other passion is web designing. These two passions are actually interrelated since I’m advocating for barrier-free access to information on the web where the deaf are one of those sectors who are disadvantaged. Designing websites that are accessible to everyone has been my battle cry for many years now.
So, here’s to the success of the event! What are you waiting for? Sign up here! Oh by the way, did I mention that it’s free? 🙂
